About the Book

Covenantal Dispensationalism reviews the history and development of Covenant Theology and Dispensationalism, along the way highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of each hermeneutical system. This work illustrates how the two sides have grown apart, and seeks to reconcile the two by appealing to common theological concepts the two schools share, as well as providing critique where one side has better evidence for a particular point of doctrine.

Matthew is an ecumenical at heart and as a Southern Baptist seeks to reach out to groups who are often at odds theologically with one another as he demonstrates in this work. His favorite verse and the one that unites all believers is Romans 10:9, “if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (NIV)
